Top Ten Binge Worthy TV Shows
(Feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)
It's a FREEBIE week! So I'm stepping away from books for just a day to tackle another love...TV. I've actually cut back on my television watching, but I do still indulge in binge watching from time to time (or Thursdays :). Here are my top ten binge worthy TV shows.
Do you binge?
1) The Blacklist
I jumped on this bandwagon a little late, but it took a total of ten minutes to get me hooked (and then I lost about 8 hours of my life obsessed.) My name is Emily, and I'm in love with Raymond Reddington. Seriously. He adorns my computer desktop at work, and I'm seriously considering investing in a fedora. He's evil, and charming, and so very interesting to watch.
2) The Musketeers
I don't have cable, so I've waited patiently for this gem to make it to DVD. And then it did. And I've watched the entirety of season 1 twice over the last week. It's romantic, and intriguing, and so darn likable. And now I'm dedicated to finally reading the book.
3) Orphan Black
What? No really...what just happened? I say a lot to myself while watching this weird, confusing, addicting show. The writing is outstanding, and the lead, Tatiana Maslany, does an AMAZING job creating different personalities for each of her characters. Brilliant. Simply brilliant.
Shawn Spencer is my spirit animal, and I'm a sucker for hilarious pop culture references weaved into a show.
There was one, glorious summer, that I devoured Chuck. And enough time has passed (a year :) for me to tackle this fantastic show again. Another great source of pop culture references, but then you also get a cast of characters that are completely endearing and lovable.
6) Call the Midwife
I seriously weep during every episode. I mean, full on sobs. But characters, and setting, and storylines are genuinely heartfelt and hopeful. (I like this so much more than Downton Abbey.)
7) Doctor Who
Each doctor brings something new. And ten rules them all :)
8) Veronica Mars
Who doesn't love a fast-talking, quick-witted spitfire who isn't afraid of getting a little messy from time to time? And Enrico Colantoni is one of my favorites.
9) Gilmore Girls
It's Gilmore Girls. I shouldn't really have to say anything else. Except that my list goes Logan, Jess, Dean. You can argue with me all you want, but I won't change my mind :)
"Troy and Abed in the morning!" This cast of quirky characters are ridiculous and totally disturbed. And I love them.
